Matt Bellamy wants UFO show

Matt Bellamy wants a huge UFO-shaped object to land at one of his shows.

The Muse rocker believes bands should go the extra mile when they are on tour. He loves offering his fans a spectacle and is continually coming up with new ways to impress.

"I don't really have much understanding of subtle," he told Q magazine. "One day I'm going to get a huge zeppelin shaped like a UFO to come and land in a stadium. I've been trying for years, but no one will let us do it."

Although Matt's music is important to him, he doesn't take things too seriously. His band's song Survival was the anthem for the London 2012 Olympic Games and in one part he reaches an ear-splitting high note.

The star is fine with people finding that funny.

"We don't care if people don't necessarily take songs like that 100 per cent seriously," he explained. "I'm just as happy when people in the crowd go, [covers face and hoots with laughter] and say, 'I can't believe they just did that!' I find that just as rewarding as when they go, 'Wow man, that was brilliant.'"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

It's sometimes difficult for a retiring person like you to showcase your talent. You are tired of being eclipsed by pushy rivals. By showing your work to the right people, you can finally gain the fame and acclaim you deserve. Fortunately, an influential friend, neighbour or colleague can set up an interview or introduction. An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
